The project scope covers provision of logistics base, freight forwarding, custom clearance, material storage & warehousing, handling and lifting, marine port visits support along with tank cleanings and logistics operations planning and conduct (material & personnel).
Bourbon will provide Integrated Logistics services through a local branch “Bourbon Logistics Namibia” with a strong and well-established local partner: “Logistics Support Services” (LSS). Working with a solid local partner is a key aspect of Bourbon local content strategy.
The project started in early August 2019 and should last approximately one year with drilling activities expected in the first semester 2020. The operations will be managed out of Lüderitz, a port in the south of Namibia, representing a particularly interesting challenge for Bourbon teams.
Grégoire Durand, VP Oil & Gas logistics of Bourbon Marine & Logistics, commented: “We are extremely pleased to support Total E&P in this new exploration project, and will ensure to provide efficient cost effective integrated logistics services, with the help of our local partner. The deployment of such integrated services contract for our number one customer prefigures a new way of sustainable cooperation and optimised services delivery to our customers.”
